Hey all,

I'm new to the website but am looking for a bit of help wording a dissertation question, or argument topic as they say.

As part of my 5,000 word dissertation, I will be analysing Martin Scorsese's representation of power within his characters, primarily looking at 'The Wolf of Wall Street'. I'm just having difficulty proposing what I want to study in one line. For example, I've seen many students use "To what extent does ..." and so on, but I don't think that would fit my research topic.

If you would like to know anymore information about my topic, I'd be happy to do so. Thank you in advance for any help or tips you may have!

Matt

Does it have to be a question?

What methods does Martin Scorsese use to represent the power of his characters and how effective are they?

Is that too simplistic? I actually like the wording you used to explain it but clearly that's not a question.

Thank you Rachael! That's a brilliant way of wording the title!

Honestly, that's near on, if not, perfect. It's amazing how much a new opinion can help

Thanks again!
